week beginning November 21, 2013 Real Estate Victoria

Introducing a Better Way to Track Home Sale Prices On November 1, the Victoria Real Estate Board (VREB) joins the Canadian Real Estate Association and nine major real estate markets in Canada by adopting a new approach to reporting residential property sales price trends. Instead of relying on average and median sale prices, VREB is moving to a system called the MLS® Home Price Index (MLS® HPI). MLS® HPI estimates the values of typical homes, whereas medians and averages merely reflect the overall selling prices of the particular mix of homes that sold in a given month. At the heart of the MLS® HPI is the concept of the “benchmark” home, a given home that includes the most common attributes of typical homes in a given area. By analyzing 10 years of VREB MLS® sales data, MLS® HPI has defined benchmark homes for Greater Victoria as a whole, and for each region, district and neighbourhood. In each of these areas, MLS® HPI defines a benchmark home for each category of single family home, townhouse and condo apartment. Each month, local MLS® sales data will feed into the MLS® HPI to calculate and track changes in the prices of our benchmark homes. Similar to the Consumer Price Index (CPI), MLS® HPI maintains a running index of the percentage change in benchmark prices. Like the CPI, the MLS® HPI assigns an index value of 100 to the benchmark prices at its starting point of January 2005. By tracking both benchmark prices and index values each month, MLS® HPI provides a much clearer picture of real estate market trends in Greater Victoria. The methodology has been endorsed by Statistics Canada, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, the Bank of Canada, Finance Canada and Central 1 Credit Union. As with past price trend tools, only a REALTOR® can evaluate the potential sale price of an individual home with its unique features and location.

Whatever your needs are, a REALTOR® can help.

Why Use a REALTOR?

Cleaning Up The Homestead

Over 10 years in business, owner wants to retire. Good lease in place.

Downtown Vitamin shop/ Organic Food shop $149,000 D

New MLS 330568

Your REALTOR can give you an objective opinion of what you need to do. REALTORS have the experience and knowledge that can help identify problem areas or suggest improvements. In most cases, REALTORS will not suggest major renovations. A few minor repairs here and there and a thorough cleaning are usually all that are required.

25 seats inside, Affordable rent, lots of foot traffic & any kind of take out businesses will fit.

Post Office with Dry Cleaning Service $248,000 Centrally located in a plaza, easy operation and well established.

Smoke Shop in Busy Mall $199,000

Buying, selling or leasing a home or other property is likely to be one of the most important financial decisions you will make. That's why it makes sense to have a trained, knowledgeable professional on your side who can give you expert guidance throughout the real estate transaction.

Well established, short hours, good lease in place, potential to grow.

The value a REALTOR brings to your next real estate transaction cannot be underestimated. In addition to access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) that ensures properties for sale or lease receive the widest exposure possible, REALTORS can help take the stress out of buying, selling or leasing. This means you have more time to devote to other important matters. REALTORS are skilled negotiators who can qualify potential buyers and draw up enforceable contracts. Your REALTOR knows your neighbourhood -REALTORS assess market conditions and property values daily and have access to detailed market resources. Your REALTOR also has been educated on the complex laws and regulations affecting real estate and can give you valuable advice to help ensure your interests are protected.

Pizza/ other take out place in Sidney $120,000

A building w/ 2 restaurants & a grocery store in Sidney $1,700,000 Grocery store is included in the price & 2 restaurants are rented out.

Virtually all buyers are on the lookout for one thing — a clean home. Many will simply walk away if a home looks uncared for and, at the very least, an untidy home will fetch a lower selling price. Ensure your home is spotless and free of clutter. The two most important rooms in a buyer’s mind are the kitchen and the bathroom. Pay particular attention to these areas — they should sparkle and shine.

Making Repairs

There are certain items that must be repaired if there are problems. A leaky roof, for example, must be fixed. Any electrical problems will have to be addressed. Furnaces, water heaters and plumbing also fall into this category. Other areas may not need major repairs but will need attention. These can include leaky faucets, holes in window screens and any broken glass, etc. If some of your walls are too dirty to come clean, you may wish to consider a paint job. Carpets and rugs should also be clean and in good repair.

Outside & In

Buffet restaurant $198,000 160 seats, liquor license, Good income, parking.

Take a close look at the state of your yard. If you are showing your home in the summer, trees and shrubs should be pruned and your lawn kept neat. In the fall, rake leaves regularly and in the winter ensure the walks and driveway are kept clear of any snow or ice.

Franchise Dollar Store in Mill Bay $88,000 Easy to operate, excellent lease & good income. Good income, short hours, easy operation.

Pan-Asian restaurant $90,000 LD

O Nice ambiance, excellentSlocation, affordable rent, good income.

To Renovate Or Not To Renovate

Downtown restaurant reduced to $58,000

Full commercial kitchen with Mezzanine, Easy parking, Renovated. Good lease in place.

Japanese restaurant in Downtown $130,000

Inner Harbour, nice ambiance, 3,200sq, Liquor License, good lease in place.

Pizza Take Out Place $59,000 Close to Uptown, busy traffic, can be any kind of eatery, ample parking.

Usually, most renovations do not translate into an increase in selling price of more than the cost of the renovations themselves. Painting, wall-papering and modest landscape improvements usually recover their costs, but major projects such as new patios, decks or additions rarely do.

Moving Up Or Down

Thai Restaurant $198,000 Excellent location in Oak Bay, newer equipment, good income, low rent

Japanese/Tibetan Restaurant $129,000 Well established, nice ambiance, liquor license, good lease in place

Grocery/Convenience Store $135,000 Well established, nice and clean grocery store. Good lease in place, busy intersection. Room to grow

Crofton Motel $988,000 Total 15 units (10- 2 bedroom, 4-1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom manager unit.), easy to operate, good income.

Tofino Mexican Restaurant $95,000

If you are selling your home because you need more space with a growing family, or if you plan on downsizing now that the kids have left home or you want less work, your REALTOR can help. With access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) your REALTOR can provide you with list of homes for sale that meet your needs and your budget. If you have access to the Internet you can view all of the properties listed for sale on the Board’s MLS® system by logging on to

Presently 8 months open & 4 months on a holiday. Owner retiring, good lease in place, any kind of restaurant will work.

BC HOME SALES UP MORE THAN 26 % in OCTOBER British Columbia saw a total of 6,673 residential sales in October, up 26.5 per cent from that same month last year. According to the latest data from the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA), the average residential price in the province hit $540,432, a 6.3 per cent jump from October 2012. “The fall housing market is shaping up to be the most active in four years,” said Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief Economist. “Persistently low mortgage interest rates and an element of pent-up demand have driven home sales higher in the province’s large Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island markets.”
